The Voice of the Patient in Clinical Trials: Hearing It, Understanding It

Life Sciences, Clinical Trials, Pharmaceutical,
  • Wednesday, September 10, 2014

Sponsors, regulators and even patients themselves are placing an increasing emphasis on patient-direct data in clinical trials. This webinar will delve into patient self-reporting, examining the use
of paper and electronic patient-reported outcomes (ePRO) by phase and therapeutic area, and the projected use of patient-direct data. Using data from over 7,000 studies, viewers will see the most commonly used questionnaires and quality-of-life instruments.

So how can this information help us improve clinical trials? It allows us to explore opportunities to decrease the burden for patients participating in clinical research, and for sponsors and CROs who design and conduct trials. With examples of sponsor-specific information on PRO and questionnaire usage, the presenter will examine how organizations can increase the quality of their patient-reported data and the ease of collecting that data.

Finally, the webinar will take a peek at the growing interest in patients using biometric devices to collect source data in clinical trials, and examine the promise and use of these devices.
